  • The best and only way to end the greatest show in TV history

    I'll admit that when I first saw this episode I was slightly disappointed. However, after I thought about it for a while I thought this episode was a very well done finale and it wraps up a lot of the show but still leaves enough for you to wonder. I mean come on it's X-Files, you can't have all the answers and I'm glad we didn't get them all. I liked the court scenes and how they summed up the 9 years of mythology. Mulder's speech near the end is probably the best part of this episode, his acting was just awesome and it was so well written. And again I, like many, love the interactions between Mulder and Scully and their love for each other. The ending is very fitting as well and Duchovny again has a nice speech. If you have the DVD the final deleted scene is pretty cool too. (The one with the president talking about the truth) I watched it a few more times later and have grown to love this episode. It's a great end to the series and X-Files will be greatly missed.
